    I think it is amazing that as a military town, military children can be turned away from a head start program due to income. Just really WRONG! I am not in any way shape or form in the military and am adamantly opposed to war and STILL think this is WRONG. Totally backwards that they serve US and we don’t serve them.

    I think it’s a federal requirement not a local or state one. I also think most military service members with young children would qualify. They don’t get paid the best.
